By Richard Munson.

Jacques Cousteau was a living legend. A world famous adventurer he has touched whales, befriended octopuses and confronted sharks. He produced and starred in dozens of films in scores of countries and hosted a popular television documentary. The author of eighty books, he also co-invented the Aqua-lung and was one of the people who launched the science of undersea archaeology.

While clearly a remarkable individual, some is legend as claims of earth-shaking discoveries have leading oceanographers complain that showmanship was the focus rather than science. Both sides of the man and his life are seen in this fascinating and unauthorized biography.
